Yes!!! Please charge the unit overnight. You didn't say what model you have. If it's a 2xx series, plug in the charger and move the on/off switch momentarily to the left until you see the screen say charging. Set the unit down and the screen will go off. If you touch the screen again, it will come on. After charging is done, when you touch the screen it will say charging is complete. Remove the charger. If its' a 3xx or 6xx product, hold down the on/off power button until you get the charge screen.

My screen just went white and a black dot appeared with the message press dot what should i do


Try pressing the dot. If that does not work you can try resetting the unit which will return it to factory specs but all your saved information like favorites and routes will be lost. The reset button is on the bottom of the unit. Power the unit off then press and hold the reset till it starts and the choose yes on the screen to restore the unit.
I have attached a link to the manual which shows a photo of the location and page 13 describes the reset in more detail.
Thanks for using FixYa

My Garmin nuvi 780 will not turn on. When I turn on, the Garmin logo shows on the screen. However, when "Loading Maps" is displayed, 1-2 seconds later the screen goes blank. This occurs when the unit is...


I had the same problem. When you have your nuvi plugged into your cigarette lighter it doesn't charge. Your battery is probaly near dead. I called Garmin and they told me to plug it into my computer via the usb cable. Turn the Garmin off and let it charge for several hours. That did the trick

I turned my Garmin on and just the black screen appeared and never loaded to the home screen


You might try a couple of things:
1. Do a hard reset on the unit by holding the power button in the ON position until it restarts. It could be that your unit was left in a funky state when last you used it.
2. Plug it in to your computer (it will connect as if it were a storage device), go through all the registration stuff with Garmin.com, and download any software updates that are outstanding. That should clear things up.

Black Screen to no power


Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Auto shut down screen does appear when ignition is turned off


This is telling me that your cigarette lighter socket has +12VDC applied to it all the time EVEN when the ignition is turned OFF. This is not the fault of your Nuvi. On some cars, like Hondas, the cigarette lighter socket powers off when your ignition is turned off.

If you want it to turn off with the ignition, then you will have to power it from a +12VDC source that is controlled by the ignition.

Question: Why won't my unit charge while plugged into my vehicle?
From the Garmin site: --> Answer: If your unit will not charge in your vehicle, you may need to replace the fuse located in the tip of the vehicle power adapter.
  1. Unscrew and remove the silver or black, round end piece. fileservlet?date=1&kb={6b85cfa0-194d-11dc-44cd-000000000000}&id={6e53bea0-6874-11dd-436f-000000000000}&ext=jpg
  2. Remove the fuse (glass and sliver cylinder) and replace with a new fuse.
  3. Ensure that the silver tip is placed in the end piece. Screw on the end piece.
